I could hardly work yesterday because I had this idea in my head. I had to make a collage out of the tree stamps and dies from the Thoughtful Branches bundle! By the time I made it to my craft studio after 8 pm, I pretty much had a vision of what I wanted. I turned the tv on to keep me company and got to work.
This set is remarkably easy to use. I love that you can layer the leaves for added fullness, or trim them to add the spareness of autumn. The hardest part of the whole project, was getting the measurements right for the squares and layers.
The Thoughtful Branches Bundle is available, while supplies last, from August 2-31. Don't wait to get yours; order before they disappear! Contact me for more details!
Yesterday, I received the Thoughtful Branches Stamp Set. This set is only available in August (and only while supplies last). Demonstrators can pre-order theirs a month ahead, giving us plenty of time to play and create. Oh, I love that perk!
This set is great for all seasons and occasions. And while I love trees, what really caught my eye was this hydrangea. Fellow demonstrator, Jenny Moore, posted the instructions on how she created these darling notecards, and I knew these had to be the first things I made with the set.
What really makes these flowers pop is the fact that they're stamped twice. Stamp the blossoms twice in Watermelon Wonder on to Flirty Flamingo cardstock. Then, using the coordinating die, cut two sets out using the Big Shot. Adhere one layer directly to the card, and the other is adhered using Stampin' Dimensionals, giving it a 3-D effect. The added small pearls just give it a touch of delicacy, while the linen thread adds a slightly country feel. I liked it so much, that I made another one in a different color scheme.
These cards were relatively quick and easy to make, with the Watercolor Wash Background stamp making a quick, neutral background.
Again, this bundle is only available while supplies last from August 2-31. Contact me today, to order yours!
I love elephants. In fact, I do believe that they are my favorite land animal. I could stand and watch them all day. But, when this Love You Lots Stamp Set first appeared, I thought the designs were rather simple. But then, as I saw what others were doing with it, it really came alive and it's been on my wish list since about June. I was thrilled when it arrived yesterday and knew I had to use it right away!
I paired it up with the Little Foxy Designer Series Paper for a soft effec.
The Love You Lots Stamp Set is a only available only available with Stampin’ Rewards. With Bonus Days, this is is a great time to get as many rewards as you can, and be able to get this cute set for yourself.
If asked, Flourishing Phrases has to be one of my favorite bundles in the entire 2016 Stampin' UP! catalog. I love the delicate lines of the Flourish thinlet dies: flowers, vines, leaves, and a trellis.
And the matching stamps have amazing sentiments for just about every occasion.
I love it so much, I created a class "To Go" with it. To learn more about this amazing class "To Go", which includes a step-by-step tutorial, please click here.
